WINNERS NEVER QUIT,
QUITTERS NEVER WIN

Biography / About me

I was born in Sevilla, and I have practised equestrianism with great enthusiasm since I was a child, until it became my greatest passion. At the age of seventeen I had my first experience with Classical Dressage, what meant a turning point in my life. Yet, I found a discipline that merged the horse-riding practice with my other great callings: sport and competition.

I have always been a very competitive sportsman, and now my life is focused on this. Fortunately, during my training period I could learn from wide experienced trainers, both in Spain and abroad. I started my professional career when I first took part in the technical team of the Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda Horse Riding School, where I spent thirteen years as a rider and trainer, taking the position of Technical Manager the last eight years.

My incorporation into International Competition at a GP level, by the hand of the Spanish National Team, provided me the necessary experience to become a high level rider and trainer.

Professional Activity

I’ve always kept a constant presence both in sport competition and teaching fields, what has allowed me to represent my country worldwide and take part in the most important classical dressage international competitions (Nations Cups).

Being conscious of the great potential of Spanish Classical Dressage in the international field and aware of my experience as a rider and trainer of competition horses, I took the decision of dealing with a new professional and personal project aimed to my development as a sportman: I bet for the creation of a stable for competition horses that pursues the sporting success. This project offers four types of services:

  • Classical dressage and boarding of horses
  • Clinics and Stays
  • Buy and sell
  • Sponsorship

Stables

In this moment I train in “La Menara", stables located in Carmona (Sevilla), at only 15 minutes from the Sevilla International Airport. These sports facilities fully meet the needs for my horses to enjoy the best conditions, receive the best care and attention, always surrounded by an environment where the design and the functionality turn the practice of horse riding into a unique pleasure. Thanks to Michele and Carlos, and their work philosophy I have found the perfect place where to combine the sports training and the comfort of the horses.
